Abstract

In an effort to create education reform by promoting students' intrinsic motivation (EVI) to learn, we are developing a program to train IM-supportive teaching assistants (TAs). We present our preliminary analysis of the first two TAs' reflective teaching journals and discuss what IM-supportive instruction looks like and how we can improve our training program.
